Noticeable lines appear on video camera footage? Pls Help!

I recently received my friend's old video camera, a Canon HF10. It works perfectly and shoots really nice video but the only problem is that it has about 5 flashing white lines that appear whenever recording video. It started with just one line and now more have gradually appeared. This only happens when recording video and the lines do not appear when taking pictures. My friend said it could be that the CMOS sensor is dirty and that I might have to get it cleaned. Is this likely? The CMOS Sensor is what causing these random lines to appear whenever the camcorder is on video mode?
If anybody could point me in the right direction to resolving this issue then i will be very very grateful! Cheers.
